Your Sister’s Sister

Lynn Shelton returns after her 2009 bromance comedy Humpday, with an equally hilarious and honest depiction of complicated romance and sibling relationships.

A year after the death of his brother, Jack is still struggling to deal with his volatile grief. His best friend Iris, also the ex-girlfriend of his brother, hatches a plan for Jack to escape to her family’s remote island getaway, hoping that some isolation will help him come to terms with his loss. When he gets there, however, he doesn’t find the solitude he’s searching for but Iris’ recently single and lovelorn sister, Hannah. A bottle of tequila and a night of sharing their woes soon results in the hangover from hell.

This effortlessly charming and grounded comedy has real heart, marking Shelton’s maturation as a filmmaker with solid and naturalistic performances across the board.
